Renault Kangoo (1997)
The Renault Kangoo and Kangoo Express is a van and leisure activity vehicle produced by Renault since 1997. The Kangoo is manufactured in the MCA plant in Maubeuge, France, and in Santa Isabel, Argentina. It is also sold by Nissan in Latin America and Europe as the Kubistar.
The rear windows and seats can be removed, producing the panel van Kangoo Express. The Kangoo is popular with the mobility-impaired and wheelchair users due to its height and accessibility. It can be adapted to include mounting points for wheelchairs. Both the Kangoo and Kangoo Express are available in 4WD versions, with raised ride height and altered styling. A lengthened version is also available, with an increased cargo area, as well as a pickup version in the Swedish market.
